Denim trade show Kingpins will ask its exhibitors to prove their environmental compliance at its next edition in Amsterdam in April.
Exhibitors at the show will be asked to comply with or exceed current corporate social responsibility (CSR) regulations concerning environmental protection and the use of chemicals, Fashion Network has reported. This has previously only been asked of denim spinners.
The Amsterdam edition will also include a seminar presented by the Waste and Resources Action Programme, focusing on solutions on how denim spinners can reach the new social standards by next year.
The new admission criteria are limited to the show’s Amsterdam edition, with a view to expand this to the New York, Hong Kong and China shows in the future.
Kingpins runs on 10-11 April at Westergasfabriek.
